Let's Raise Some Funds for Meets!

Do you love Park Pool? Do you find yourself wishing there was a way to display your stingray pride on your car, water bottle, or swim parka? Well, we have got the solution for you! Our new stingray logo is now available as a sticker, magnet, or patch!

These items are ONLY available as part of the Stingray Spirit Fundraiser. Each year the swim team fundraises to pay for subs to work jobs at meets that haven't been filled. Your donations help us cover this cost and ensure that more of our budget can go to fun social activities.

  • Donate $20 to get an awesome high-grade sticker!

  • Donate $30 for a sweet car magnet!

  • Donate $50 for a sew-on patch or iron it on!

  • OR donate $75 to get all three!!

Donating to the fundraiser is the ONLY way to get these fun spirit items, they will not be sold as part of the regular gear sale. 

Stickers and magnets will be available for pick up at Time Trials on Sunday, May 19.

Sign Up and Send Donations via Pay Pal account, treasurer@orindaparkpool.org
